The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has published a five-point plan on how the UK can protect and promote its status as a world leader on equality and human rights after it leaves the European Union.

The plan encourages all political parties to pursue the following five priorities:

  • protecting parliamentary sovereignty over the UK’s equality and human rights legal framework
  • keeping the UK’s equality and human rights legal framework as the UK leaves the European Union
  • making sure the UK is a global leader on equality and human rights
  • protecting the UK’s equality and human rights infrastructure
  • promoting the UK as an open and fair place to live and do business.
